Three of my stories appeared in reprint anthologies this summer. You can find “Embedded” in Fiction River Presents: Space Travelers, “Sole Survivor” in Fiction River Presents: Among The Stars, and “Hand Fast” in No Way: Totally Twisted Tales. “Embedded” is military sf, “Sole Survivor” is a standalone part of the Retrieval Artist series, and “Hand […]Continue Reading
I’m working really hard on a big Diving Universe saga, which is taking 99% of my brain power, it seems. I forget to do basic things, like letting you know about all the various projects of mine that have appeared. I’ve finally put Promo!!! on my daily calendar, with a specific assignment to see if […]Continue Reading
This summer looks like it’ll be the summer of bundle crossovers. Somehow, through the magic of Kris being calendar challenged in 2016, I’m in several bundles that will crossover with each other. The first crossover occurred this week. The Moonscapes bundle that I told you about two weeks ago ends on Wednesday. If you like […]Continue Reading
I’m particularly fond of June. I entered the world in June many decades ago, and as a result, I feel like it’s my month. I think I’d like the month even without the personal resonance: June contains the longest days of the year (in my hemisphere, at least) and, in the Pacific Northwest, is the […]Continue Reading
I was staring down the barrel of 2017, trying to figure out my writing projects. And I realized on Tuesday that the reason I couldn’t just dive in on Monday was because I hadn’t…oh, crap…defined myself.
I had defined myself in general. That’s easy. I’m a writer first, and to me, that means all the writerly things I do and have done from the old Star Wars book to new fiction I’m writing (from the romance short to the Diving universe to the historical mystery I just finished for the next Lawrence Block antho) to this blog and all the nonfiction.
But I somehow did not handle the specifics of being a writer very well in 2016.Continue Reading
I’m so thrilled to have a novella in The Year’s Top Short SF Novels, edited by Allan Kaster. This is a lovely audiobook rendition of “Inhuman Garbage.” The other novellas in here are amazing. If you commute, then this is an audio book for you. It’s available in ebook and paper formats as well. Take […]Continue Reading
Hmmm. That sounds like a great story title. I must consider it. But right now, it’s a title for this blog post. Because at the moment, you can find my work in three different bundles. First, for those of you who love short stories, have I got a bundle for you. Jamie Ferguson put together […]Continue Reading
My latest novelette, “Matilda,” just appeared in Asimov’s SF Magazine. I got inspired when I read some of the older works for Women of Futures Past, and I decided to try my hand at a sentient ship story. Sheila Williams of Asimov’s liked it enough to put it in the April/May issue. You can even […]Continue Reading
I had a dry spell for news during the month of March, but as the rains ease in the Northwest, the writing news dry spell ends as well. Or something like that. Yes, I’m mixing metaphors. And not very successfully. First, the latest volume of Fiction River just appeared. Sparks, edited by Rebecca Moesta, contains […]Continue Reading
